It’s the goal that never was but that hasn’t stopped Scott Jamieson talking up his stunning strike from the weekend, according to Western Sydney Wanderers team-mate Scott Neville.
Against Wellington Phoenix, Jamieson lit up Wanderland on Saturday with a spectacular volley from 25-yards out which scorched into the back of the net.
Making the strike even more exceptional was that he hit it with his weaker right foot.
But much to the disappointment of the 14,000 fans – and especially Jamieson – the goal was ruled out due to a foul in the lead up by Federico Piovaccari.
Reflecting on the incident on Tuesday, Neville admitted while it didn’t count, “Jamo” is still raving about his ‘Ghost Goal’.
“It was one of the best strikes I’ve ever seen in the A-League,” said the Wanderers right-back.
“He’s [Jamieson] still talking about it now. He’s got it up on his iPhone and he’s showing everyone.
“He’s probably a bit hard done by to be honest and it’s definitely a contender for goal of the season if it stood.”
The disallowed goal aside, confidence and the mood in the Wanderers camp is sky high on the back of four straight wins.
The new-look squad is looking more settled every week and producing their best football in the club’s four-year history.
A key component of that success has been Spanish import Andreu, who is building a lethal combination in the middle of the park with compatriot Dimas Delgado and Mitch Nichols.
“You can see we have a very good relationship, not just on the pitch but off the pitch we have a good feel,” Andreu said.
“We understand every role during the 90 minutes. This is why we are feeling good between us.
“We are creating a great atmosphere, not just the first XI, everyone that comes from the bench as well,” he added. “This is the way to win the title.”
The Wanderers head up the F3 on Sunday to take on Central Coast in what promises to be a hugely entertaining clash between two of the Hyundai A-League’s most attack-minded sides.
